3 years ago I would have said you couldn’t pay me to get a Facebook or a twitter.
As time went on everything I did everywhere I went was social media and one thing I noticed is not to many people really understand how it works I mean REALLY get it.
So I finally accepted Facebook, Pinterest, Google+ Twitter, LinkedIn are all here to stay.
Now the networks may constantly change like my space aol etc. We are still in the infancy of this industry 10 yrs from now we may have 20 different networks then today.
I will TELL you this though social media, and technology in general are not even on training wheels yet.
I remember my first 3 months online to the first day you tweeted or joined Facebook. I joined Facebook in 2011 when I managed Householdhacker ON YT.
The only reason I did was because I had to keep up with general internet news.
I remember thinking how silly and awkward it was to have family, friends, neighbors, girlfriends, coworkers etc all in the same place.
About 3 days in I made the decision if I was going to be on the computer I would be very very low key. 3 years ltr IT IS ASTOUNDING how open we ll are whether we realize it or not.
Now we share our life EVERYWHERE.
For me learning all the proper terms was strange. I literally just jumped in made statements that no one knew what they meant.
I thought if I made more then 2 posts on Fb that was way to many and decided I would just dive in head first.
Yes, we do social media for business. I know this though once in awhile ya’ have to laugh a little or even a lot.
I made a list of about 76 things I hear newbs or inexperienced social media managers in the making say here are the ones I thought were best. Do you have favorite?
I have a Google+ but nobody talks to me.
Those followers we bought don’t really talk much..
My website is sick! We just added a twitter button.
Why does everyone tweet what they ate for lunch and what is with all the cats?
What do you mean FB PM me later I’ll call you at 4:00 pm et.
Did I just tweet?
You can’t post that word!
Can we get arrested for posting that?
Ok cool chatting ttyl. Seriously, just call me. or I will call you
I just read this article saying no one is doing this idea of ordering FB posts already made for us!
Why do you I look so tired?

Social Media is for people who don’t have a life.
What’s my password?
I think I’ll go back to Facebook
What if my competitors see what we say?
I just found out my best customer is on Twitter and has something called LinkedIn
I’ll just send all my tweets to Facebook & Facebook posts to tweets and will be all set!
Make sure to say social media expert after my name
How much do I pay for a verified badge?
Oh I thought that egg meant I was just new and later it would change
I need to use my real face? Why would I do that?
Facebook, nobody is on Facebook anymore.
Facebook is AWESOME
. Google+ huh Circle share what the hell are you talking bout.
Be careful out there on that internet.
I heard there are ripoff scammers.
Let my sales reps on social? Are you kidding?
My sales reps don’t have time for social. They are too bust getting leads.
We can’t let people comment on our blog. What if someone says something bad?
Call to action? What action?
